Following a great Annual Meeting in Portland, ME in 2018, NESS members submitted 41 manuscripts to JACS with 14 being accepted for publication. Many of you have contributed as authors, mentors, reviewers and critique writers. All this good work promotes the academic mission of our society and it is very much appreciated.

We have our Resident and Fellow Research day in May and the 2019 Annual Meeting in Montreal, is just around the corner. In the upcoming year, we will work with our Publications Committee so all authors will benefit from pre-submission reviews by content experts within the society. We are hopeful we can continue to increase the manuscript publication rate in this way.

In Montreal, 2019, we will be inducting many new members—including candidate members—into NESS. Sadly, each year we also mourn the passing of members. If you are aware of a death in our NESS community, please let us know so we can properly memorialize our own.

Hope to see some of you in Waltham, MA, May 7th and many more of you in Montreal. Au revoir.
